Awesome first post, thanks and welcome! Yuzuru is definitely growing hugely every season, sometimes I feel like telling him to slow down cause I can't keep up, but that's part of what makes him so interesting to follow.

Thanks for the welcome! I used to watch figure skating as a little kid and loved it...then it kind of slipped my mind until this year when the Japanese men began to really gain momentum. I'm a fan of Kozuka, Takahashi and Yuzuru....actually of anyone who can put together an entertaining performance! I love the way, when he's having a good day, Yuzuru makes his quads look so easy and smooth...however I hope he gets a better free program next season. I think this program lacks a crescendo (the choreo, not the music) unlike his last one; so it moves along at roughly the same pace throughout. Even though the music is dramatic, I don't feel that it's been choreographed quite right...or maybe he just hasn't gotten the hang of it? Seeing his Romeo and Juliet again the other day in EX really brought it home that he 'could' do a lot better in the musical interpretation if given the right steps. I'm still getting the hang of the technicalities of scoring and stuff but these are just observations from someone who is relatively new to the sport.

I love his jumps too, I can rewatch his quads over and over, and I've never actually been especially interested in jumps in the past. Regarding his FS, I think it's a bit of both, the program itself isn't optimally choreographed, but he also hasn't shown us everything he can do with it yet. Maybe it's just me though, but I'm honestly liking this FS more and more every time he skates it. It's definitely not his best, but Yuzuru's musicality and strong performance ability allows him to make something out of it. I think we've also been a bit spoiled by R&J, it was an ideal match for him and is a tough program to follow up on.

One good thing is that now we know Yuzuru can be pretty darn good even with an average program .
This is a super cute clip: Yuzu's already inspiring the next generation! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JUfCPfaNNSM

Kenji choregraphed Yuzu's prog, his EX in kimono is Miyamoto's work.
